How Twitter SAVED Me $80

The new search engine... TWITTER!

Yep. People don't think of Twitter as a search engine.

What is wrong with Google? It has everything?


The problem... it has everything!

Twitter is REAL TIME. So it shows you recent and updated news and information. I used it yesterday to save $80. I needed a coupon code. I did a search for Dell Outlet Coupon Code on Google and for 1,000 results, all with expired coupons. I logged into my twitter account and did a general search for Dell Outlet Coupon and saved $80!

 

Easy as that!

Try it for everything from Victoria Secret Coupon Code and any site that you see "Apply Coupon Code"

I like retailmenot for coupon codes, from the makers (for lack of a better word) of bugmenot.

Frank - I never considered twitter for a search engine, but it makes sense.  I will try that next time I am looking for something and needing a coupon or discount code.

Frank, I use retailmenot.com and cheapcheapcheap.com - they both usually have the codes I need.  Never thought of using Twitter - now i will.

Hi Frank - I never gave Twitter much thought as a search engine.  I guess I'll have to look at that much closer and see what I can find.

fatwallet.com is great site for latest deals and coupons.  Save some real money checking it out before you buy anything.

 

Also, concerning Twitter, they have finally found something that will make them money and you have found it.  Their search is real time and real people.  Very valuable to sell ads with this information.  Google will either buy them, do a deal with them to have their ads, or Twitter will go SOLO.  Either way its a gold mine for the guys that started Twitter.

 

Keep up the good work Frank...

Great tip Frank!  I recently got a airline discount code from a twitter search.

Google just teamed up with Twitter for real time search results.  This should make Twitter some money and also show these results under a Google search.
